must control key aspects of american life. healthcare and the economy being the top two. thus, the end justifies the means in trying to do that. thus, mr. obama keeps saying you can keep your old insurance plan if you like it. even though you can't. ifyour plan doesn't include the federal mandates that are being imposed. now, talking points and many others have pointed that out again and again. we pointed out that obama care will cause many americans, perhaps most, major inconvenience and higher healthcare expense. rarely does the president mention higher deductibles and co-pays for his health program. even though mr. obama's propaganda has been exposed, he doesn't seem to care. instead of being chastened he is emboldened, why? because the president believes that his vision for america, including healthcare for all, is more noble than any truthful statement. and so he justifies his actions, even if deceit is involved. that was clear yesterday when the president said. this. toted the affordable care act requires insurance companies to abide by some the strongest consumer protections thi
statement. that is reality. the president's signature issue, affordable healthcare not so affordable. and even if you want to sign up, the computer chaos makes it it very hard to do so. but the main problem, the main problem is president obama himself. for years he has been saying to americans they are not going to have to undergo pain when the health insurance changes. >> first, if you are one of the more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. this law will only make it more secure and more affordable. >> well, for many americans that's simply not true. the initial data is clear, health insurance premiums are going up for many working americans and health insurance companies are literally tossing people off the rolls. there is no question that's happening. >> from that podium will you you admit that the president said if you you have a plan you will get to keep it that that was not true. >> let's just be clear. what the president said and what everybody said all along is that there are going to be changes brought along by t
for the healthcare law on its first day. that's right. six people. recent "saturday night live" skit mocking health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius was spot on. >> millions of americans are visiting healthcare.gov, which is great news. unfortunately the site was only designed to handle six users at a time. [ laughter ] >> in total, 248 people enrolled in obama care nationwide by the end of day two according to an internal obama administration memo obtained by that oversight committee. adding to the list of white house whos is the fact that the vast majority of those signing up on state exchanges are signing up for medicaid while a much smaller number are signing up for private insurance, the administration says it will release official enrollment numbers in mid november, but, if the numbers are as bad as these reports suggest, what will the president do? joining me now to react from washington, d.c., democrat strategist julian epstein. julian, six? you couldn't make this up. if i had said six, they would call me crazy, racist, who know what is they would call me. six. >> i'm the firs
accurate, all right. that it is, once it gets all sorted out, going to be a panacea on the healthcare front. and you say? >> well, i was shocked, frankly, that the president, after we heard dozens of letters on the hill today, the congressionals were asking sebelius questions, we heard all these letters from constituents about how their rates are skyrocketing and, yet, the president is sticking with the line that their rates are going to be lower. their premiums are going to be lower. he is digging. in and on the question about whether you are going to lose your insurance. i thought he dug. in he almost the president went out there and said you can keep your insurance policy even though in 2010 the regulations made it clear that 40 to 62% of people with -- who were self-insured were going it lose. >> did he read that? i doubt it. >> the president understands the plan and he knows that in order for enough people to go into the obama care exchanges, they are going to have to lose their current insurance. he had to have understood that's the only way it's sustainable. i have to say i think it
americans were apathetic to that but now because healthcare effects them directly, the situation is changing. it's no longer satisfactory for mr. obama to say is he going to get to the bottom of things because, number one, he never does. and, number two, there just too many screw ups. the administration had three and a half years to roll out the affordable healthcare law. and it spent close to a billion taxpayer dollars preparing for the rollout. yet, there is mass chaos. finally, throughout history, people have gotten the government they deserve. i'm not going to say anything more. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, reaction. joining us from reaction brit hume who has covered 8 presidents in his career. have you ever seen another president govern the way mr. obama is governing? >> not exactly, bill. all the presidents that i have witnessed have used a similar management style in the sense that they use a similar management structure. you know, staff structure at the white house. the cabinet agencies. the omb to supervise spending and so on. but they have governorred in very
